What to Expect: Landscape Designer
Spectacular outdoor spaces are the end result of meticulous planning. After your initial visit with one of our professional landscape designers, you can trust that we will be hard at work on a truly custom solution to transform your landscape dream into a reality. When you choose to partner with a landscape designer from our our team, it is our hope that this partnership will endure for many seasons to come! Here is what you can expect:
Our designer will meet with you on site for a short consultation visit to gain a visual perspective of your property and to hear your ideas. Our designer will discuss the potential project(s) and scope of work with you. We will explain the cost of preparing a conceptual drawing and applicable design fee charges. Professional landscape firms charge for their design services. You are purchasing our time and expertise to ensure a stunning finished product.
Please note: Design fees are reimbursed at the time of final billing to those who also elect CVTS-L for the installation of their project. Design fee reimbursements are pro-rated relative to project designed versus project installed.
Our designer will contact you to schedule a time to meet where we will present the conceptual drawing, an invoice for the (previously discussed) design fee service, as well as, the proposed cost for the implementation of the project(s). This meeting may take place at one of our design studios or at your property. The design will be given to you at this meeting and CVTS-L no longer retains exclusive rights to your design. Payment for the design ensures that this design is now yours to keep. (Please note any additional changes and/or re-designs may incur additional design fees.) The cost proposal presented to you at this meeting will not only outline the scope of work to be performed but it will also detail when deposit(s) and final payments are due.
The next step in the process is planning for the work to begin. To secure a spot on our schedule, our staff must receive the following from you:
- Payment for the conceptual drawing/design
- Applicable deposits
- Signed cost proposal
Professional landscape firms require deposits on their projects as a mutual display of trust and commitment.
